H.T. Whybrow became a member of the Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) Scientific Association, Bulawayo, in 1907 and served on its council for 1907/8. In April 1907 he read a substantial paper, "Some notes on the antelope of Southern Rhodesia", that was published in the association's Proceedings (Vol. 7(1), pp. 28-50). At the next meeting some comments on his paper were contributed by E.C. Chubb* and H.H. de Laessoe* (pp. 52-58).
